Description

Open Workshop Master Classes Within The New International
Saturdays and Sundays, 13:00 to 17:00 
For children aged five and up, and creative adults

Held as part of The New International, this month’s Open Workshops are the first to take place directly within the exhibition space. Participants will study the theory and practice of contemporary art. Analyzing and interpreting the artists’ works – which include video, photography, installation, painting and sculpture – students will determine the salient traits of each medium, and ultimately create their own pieces.


August 3
Light Art
This weekend’s classes concentrate on installation. Discover the difference between installation and sculpture, and use color filters, tin foil, and cardboard boxes to create your own pieces of light art.

August 9–10
Sculpture in Motion
Sculpture is one of the better-known art forms, and most people can describe its main features and cite a few examples. But what if sculptures could move? This weekend, explore the world of kinetic sculpture, with its central qualities of movement, transformation, and metamorphosis, and learn to craft mobiles out of metal, different-colored lights, and other materials.

August 16–17
Light Art 
This weekend’s classes concentrate on installation. Discover the difference between installation and sculpture, and use color filters, tin foil, and cardboard boxes to create your own pieces of light art.

August 23–24
Seize the Moment
How similar are the approaches of photographers and painters when depicting the world? While the latter may often embellish reality, the former can only document the “here and now.” This session is about seizing the moment, and later uniting our “catches” into a single bigger picture.

August 30–31
Cultural Amalgam
How compatible are folklore themes and pop-culture references in art? Learn to adopt fresh perspectives on familiar works of art, and experiment with color and style in the manner of artists Takeshi Murakami and Makiko Kudo.

September 6
Day of the City at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art

At the Day of the City, you will learn about Garage education programs, assess the balanced mix of theory and practice in the classroom, and consult with the Education Center's faculty members on the best learning options for you and your children. The Day of the City will feature presentations of adult and children-oriented courses, including Following Contemporary Art, Architecture: The Art of Seeing, Art Therapy, Animation Studio, and Photography: Drawing with a Photo Lens.
Session will be held in Garage Education Center 

September 7
History in Comic Books
In comic-book art, just one page tells an entire story depicted through numerous colorful characters. What rules must the artist follow when creating a comic book? This weekend, we review the principle methods and techniques of creating a drawn narrative, working our way up from simple pencil sketches to fully dimensional characters.

September 13–14
Artistic Instruments: volume
What is volume? What methods can an artist use to convey texture and form? These classes introduce such concepts as “volume,” “chiaroscuro,” and “brushstroke,” and teach you to create pictures using wool thread.

September 20–21
Photographic tapestries
Can a photograph be made without using a camera? And why would a modern artist draw upon a Medieval tapestry as her choice of medium? Find out, and experiment with the technique of cyanotype in the process.
